Daddy came along / ダディも一緒のあさんぽ May 21

How was your weekend everyone??

We had a nice and easy weekend :))

I had to work today so we didn't anything special but on Saturday, I slept in and woke up later than usual, and daddy woke up earlier than usual which was little later than I woke up.

So daddy came along with us and took the morning walk!!!

I could see Kaiya was very happy that daddy was coming, too.

She doesn't usually get too excited but she was really happy and smiling ;)))

さてさて みんな週末はどんな感じだったかなぁ〜?

天気もよかったんで うちはゆったり週末を過ごしたよぉ〜!今日は仕事だったから特に何もしかなったし。

疲れてたらしく土曜日の朝はいつもより遅くに起きたら そのちょっと後に珍しくダディも起床!普段はけっこー遅くまで寝てるのに。

ってことで ダディも一緒に朝の散歩に行ったよぉ!

したら Kaiyaがめちゃめちゃ嬉しそう!

普段そうそう大喜びすることないKaiyaだけど 満面の笑顔でめっちゃルンルン(笑)かわいいヤツめ!

Mato loves to chase after birds.

Mato



Their chasing game started ;)

今度は2人の追いかけっこが始まった!

Yep, like Kaiya, Mato likes to jump up on the wall during the walk ;p

Kaiyaと同じで Matoも歩いてる途中に塀の上に登るのが好きなのです(=^▽^)

We stopped at a cafe to get some coffee to go.

Waiting outside for Daddy to come back with coffee.

家に帰る前に カフェによってコーヒーをテイクアウト。

お外でダディがコーヒー買って来るのを待ってる中。

They didn't get coffee but they got to drink water out of a take-away coffee cup :)

コーヒーは飲めない2人だけど 紙のコーヒーカップから水飲んだよぉ〜( ̄∇ ̄)

Mato                                 Kaiya




There we got our coffee so we went home and had some late breakfast or I should say brunch :)

コーヒーゲットしたんで お家帰ってみんなで遅い朝ごはんにしましたぁ〜!

Summer day and Ice cream / アイス日和 May 19

Hooooot!

It went over 25°C!  The summer is here!

I was able to ride a bike to work only in T-shirt, no jacket needed this morning :)

The afternoon walk was maybe little too hot for Kaiya and Mato.

Mato didn't seem he cared but Kaiya was going little slow and didn't wanna go too far.

あっちぃ〜!

今日は最高だよ!25度超えだよ!

朝からジャケットいらず Tシャツで自転車乗れたよ!

午後の散歩はちょっとKaiyaとMatoには暑かったかなぁ〜。

Matoはそうでもなかったけど Kaiyaの動きが遅かった・・・。

Mato                          Kaiya



Mato is curious about that family of the geese.

向こうにいる 鳥の家族が気になる 気になる。

Mato



Still staring at them.  And Kaiya watches Mato after sat in front of me requesting me to pet her ;)

まだ気になる。 そんなMatoをそっと私の前にちょこんと座って撫でてと無言で訴えるKaiyaが見守る(笑)

Mato                                                      Kaiya




Mato's head, black.

Matoの後頭部。黒い。

Mato



Kaiya's head, nicely hilighted.

Kaiyaの後頭部。ハイライトが素敵。

Kaiya



Who doesn't wanna eat ice cream on a day like this, right?

Yummmmm!!!

こんな暑い日はアイス日和じゃい!

フローズンヨーグルうまかったぁ〜!!

Mato

Kaiya



After we came home, I quickly cleaned the balcony.

There were many things and dust everywhere.  Took out the chairs we don't use and threw away things we don't use.  Cleaned the floor and wiped the dust.

I took out everything and I realized that our balcony is quite spacious.  We can easily lie down here and chill.  I need to work on it little more to make this balcony nicer but this is good enough for today.  I grabbed the Kaiya and Mato's blankets and a pillow and we spent evening on the balcony :)))

お家に帰って来たら 色々ものが置いてあって埃も溜まってたバルコニーを急いで片付け!

いらないものをちゃっちゃと処分して 使わないビーチチェアはしまって 地面も拭いて って物どけたらけっこー広いじゃん! いい感じに寝っ転がれる。素敵なバルコニーにするにはもう少し手を加えないとだけど 今日はとりあえずこんなもんでいいっしょ! そこらへんにあったKaiyaとMatoのブランケットを敷いて さぁ まったりタイム〜!

Mato   Kaiya



Both lay down beside me and licked my legs...Stop it!!! lol

2人とも私の足を舐めてくる・・・やめれぇ〜!!(笑)

Sunbathing / 日向ぼっこ May 18

Soooooo warm and nice weather!

It went over 20°C today.

Originally I planned to go to the gym to work out right after the work today but I gotta change it!!!

I pedalled as fast as I could to get home and took the kids to the woods :)))

あったかくて きっもちぃ〜!

今日は20度超え!

ホントは仕事の後ジムに行く予定だったけど 予定変更。

自転車マッハでこいで家に帰ってみんなで森まで!

As soon as I took the leash off, they ran off to where I couldn't see them.  Then they just walked back casually in front of me like nothing happened.  

私の見えないとこに走って行ったと思ったら シラ〜って2人で帰って来た(笑)

                                    Mato   Kaiya

Kaiya



You got something on your facc, Mato.

Matoなんか顔についてるよ(=^▽^)σ

Mato

Kaiya



"Mato, come here!" then he listened and ran to me :)))

"Mato〜 こっちおいで〜! "って言ったら 来た(笑)

Mato



But there Kaiya was waiting to attack him ;p  Mato u-turned and went back to the way he just came. lol

と思ったら 待ち伏せしてたKaiyaに狙われて そのままUターンして行っちゃった!

Mato



Flying dogs ;))))

2人とも脚が浮いてる浮いてる(´∀`)

Mato      Kaiya



Hey hey, don't go too far!!!

And yep, they went out of my sight...

The good thing was that they stopped little further down in this photo and waited for me to come.
 
ってコラァ〜! あんまり遠く行っちゃダメだぞー!!!

にもかかわらず 視界から消えるし。

でも ちゃんと先の方で2人とも私が来るのを待ってた。





Alright, you guys had little fun and now it's time to rest and sunbathe!

We lay down on lawn in the open space in between the woods and the lake.

They got bones for the treat today :)

森で少し走ったから 日向ぼっこのお時間〜!

森抜けた 湖の前のひらけたとこで 休憩〜。

今日はおやつに骨だい!

Kaiya

Mato



Some people were also sunbathing around the area.  Kaiya was staring so hard at the old dude lying close to us...lol

I couldn't stop laughing... Your face looks like an old dude now, Kaiya! :p

あったかいから 周りに人がやっぱり日光浴してて 近くに寝転がってるおっさんをガン見してるKaiya(笑)

Kaiyaの顔のがおっさんみたいになってるぞぉ〜!!( ̄∀ ̄)

Kaiya

Independent girl / インディペンデント・ガール May 17

I thought I was more tired than usual.  And I think it's because of the damp air.

It rained this morning then it stopped in the afternoon but heavy clouds were covering the sky the rest of the day.

I came home from work and didn't feel like going out to gym and do some workout...instead just stayed at home doing  my project to make a tipi for Kaiya and Mato.

When I looked back, Mato was taking a nap right behind me :)))

This boy is so cute!

今日はなんだか 珍しく湿気の多い日だったぁ。

朝から雨が降って 午後には止んだけど 空気も空もさっぱりしない感じ。

こんな天気だとやる気も出ないし なんだか疲労感が・・・。

仕事終わってから ジムにも行かず家に引きこもってKaiyaとMatoの為に犬用ティピー作り。

ふと振り返ると 真後ろで Matoがビーンバッグの上でお昼寝(o^^o)

可愛い〜。

Mato



After a little while later, I looked back again...there's one more in my sight. lol

Mato is such a mommy's boy and he always stays by my side or just a couple of feet away from me.

Kaiya's little different.  She's an independent woman and keeps certain distance. lol

Though she's mostly in the same room where I can see her. ;p

暫くしてまた振り向くともう1人いた(笑)

Matoはマミーっ子で いつでもマミーの側にいるけど Kaiyaは自立した女感たっぷりで いつも離れた所に(笑)

それでも 大抵は目に入る距離にはいるんだけどね(^ ^)

Uncles / おじさんたち May 14

I thought it would be nice for Kaiya and Mato to go to the park on the hill to run and play.

But instead of running, these two were sniffing around and eating something they found...

Mommy got so pissed because they didn't listen and kept doing it.

That's why the plan changed immediately...we took off from the park and did a long walk instead.

Other than the part they got me angry, we had a nice walk in the cloudy but warm weather ;)

今朝は走りたいかなって思って高台の公園に行ったんだけど このヒトタチ拾い食いばっかりして 頭に来たマミーはそっこで公園を出る事にして長い散歩に変更したぜ。

曇りだったけど 気温が低くなかったから 気持ちいい散歩ができたぁ〜!

Daddy had a day off and his friends, including Kaiya's favorite uncle Kay, came to our home.  Today was the so-called Guys' day.  It's the day these four get together and play games whole day long. lol

Mommy, on the other hand, had to work this evening.

Have a good one, you guys :)))

ダディーはお休みでいつもの仲間の集まりの日だから今日は家にKaiyaの大好きなケイおじさんたちが来たよぉ〜!

マミーは午後からお仕事。

行ってきまぁす! みんなにいっぱい遊んでもらいなよぉ〜!

These two came to the front door to say bye to me
but they are really good at turning their head to the side when I try to take photos. lol
カメラを向けると2人ともうまいことそっぽを向くものじゃ(笑)
だけどちゃんと"いってらっしゃい"のお見送りしてくれたよぉ〜!(*≧∀≦*)

Cafe Sirap / カフェ・シロップ May 13

"What are you doing, mommy??"

"Mommy's taking a break, Mato."

I was chilling after the morning walk but this boy didn't want me to rest, I guess. lol

He ate his breakfast and was still energetic ;p

You are too cute, I can't resist :))))

"マミーなにしてんの〜?"

"休憩してんだよぉ〜 Mato!"

あさんぽして ご飯食べて なんだかまだ元気らしくて グイグイちょっかい出してくるMato(笑)

可愛いやつめ!

Mato

It was a perfect day to ride a bike today!

The kids finally started to take a nap.  I decided to go for a bike ride about one hour before noon and it was really refreshing!!

やっといい天気〜!

2人とも昼寝し始めたし 午前中に1時間くらいサイクリングしてエクササイズ(*≧∀≦*)

めっちゃ気持ちかったぁ!!!

In the afternoon, we went out to have brunch at Cafe Sirap in the town.

It's really nice that the most of the restaurants have tables outside that Kaiya and Mato can come with us to many places.

Mato's not really used to come to the town.  He was curious about everything and couldn't just sit still.

午後はみんなでお出かけ。

マミーとダディの好きなカフェ Sirap へブランチを食べに(o^^o)

この時期は大体のレストランに外席があるから KaiyaとMatoも一緒にお出かけてできて楽しい〜!

天気もいいし 町の中だし Matoは終始キョロキョロ色んなものに興味が出て落ち着かない様子。

Mato



Kaiya, on the other hand, was lying by daddy and being a very good girl ;)

Kaiyaはダディの足元で大人しくして いい子〜!




Finally, foooooood!!!! :))))))

やっとご飯! いただきます!!!



Scramble eggs, bacons, sausages, toasts and pancakes.

This place never let me down at all.  The pancakes are amazing, crispy on the outside and fluffy inside.  If you come to Stockholm and feel for some pancakes, this is the place to come!

スクランブルエッグ ベーコン ソーセージ トースト そして ブルーベリーパンケーキ。

ここのパンケーキはマジ最高!外クリスピーで 中ふんわり。ストックホルムにきたらここのカフェ cafe Sirap は絶対お薦め!!!




We got stuffed and it's time to go home!

Took a detour to the bus stop to take a walk :)


お腹もいっぱいになったことだし 帰りはバスで帰ろう!

ってことで バス停までお散歩〜!
